I boycotted T.V. in 2008 for good… and have never missed it. I am so much more productive when its not even an option for distraction in my house. As such, I read A LOT. I often meekly approach Ben with puppy eyes asking if its okay for me to submit the latest amazon cart order I have ready to go. I figure, hey, some people spend $100/month on a cable package… I just want to replace that type of bill with a box of great books!
Thankfully, there is this really cool place, called “The Library”, where you don’t even have to pay for books! They borrow them to you and you get to read them for free! How cool is that?!
Unfortunately, my small town library is small enough that they don’t always have the latest release that I’m searching for (they don’t even have library cards actually… the librarians just know you by name) so I still have a strong amazon relationship going on.
Libraries hold a quiet sacredness to me. So much knowledge, enlightenment, inspiration, entertainment, all to be discovered by anyone willing to just slow down from the fast digital distraction world.
I need more moments like this.

Brooke Snow is a Lifestyle photographer in Cache Valley, Utah. Her favorite children’s book is Flat Stanley. Brooke holds a legendary record at North Park Elementary for reading over 100 books in the fourth grade. She also punched a boy in the library in fourth grade too. But only once. But hey, he never bothered her again. Libraries are adventurous places.
Brooke teaches private photography lessons , online photography classes, as well as seasonal photography classes in Logan, Utah.
I love these Brooke! I may use this idea one day if you don’t mind! My friends boys LOVE the Library! Did you get permission first?
I always get permission in public places 🙂
I am in love with these! I’ve always had an enormous love for books, libraries and bookstores…could spend hours there! So many good things about reading and books…They make me smile. I actually teach reading to elementary kids now. I also could totally do without T.V. My husband…not so much. 🙂
Love, love these photos…So beautiful! You are awesome!
I absolutely love all of it Brooke! As a library lover and book obsesser…this is such an awesome view into this life. I’m still working on a book inspiration project. 🙂
I love these! I think I may have to do that this summer…
Brooke, thank you for this post! I am feeling very inspired right now!
